People Talk: Given recent events, do you think our society is over-armed?

A.J. Slepian, 16, El Dorado Hills “I think we have better access to weapons now, whereas in the past it was mainly law enforcement and hunters. There is so much gun violence in the media, I think it desensitizes us, especially people with the guns and the inclination.”

Jason Stewart, 16, El Dorado Hills “€œI wouldn’€™t put it that way, but some people that are armed definitely shouldn’t be.”€

Kevin Moeller, 16, El Dorado Hills “No. Some people that own guns use them wrong. If gun registration could be improved it would help solve the problem.”

Lily Forbes, 15, El Dorado Hills “€œYes. One of my favorite quotes is, ‘If adults don’€™t have guns kids can’€™t get a hold of them.’€™ When you mix in alcohol and drugs, people lose the difference between right and wrong and gun violence follows.”€

Wayne Kanzaki, Shingle Springs “€œNo. Other states that have no restrictions on concealed weapons are no worse. You don’€™t want to start a fight in those places, because you never know who’€™s carrying. Most gun owners I know are very well educated about gun safety.”€
